Why an online MBA, LL.M and MA?

As many of our readers are asking what makes our online Masters programmes stand out from the rest, I prepared a short video to explain the most important reasons for joining an online MBA, LL.M or MA programme offered in an exclusive partnership between Robert Kennedy College and the University of Cumbria.

If you have any questions about our programmes, feel free to get in touch with our educational advisers. You can apply for our programmes online by clicking here.

Dr. iur. David Costa

David Costa is Dean of Faculty and one of the founders of Robert Kennedy College. In his capacity as Dean, Dr. Costa oversees the faculty review process and several of the academic programmes of the college. Dr. Costa holds a Dr. iur. (Doctor Iuris, Doctor of Law) degree from the University of Basel, Switzerland where he researched the law and regulations related to synthetic investment products. Dr. Costa lectures in the area of Investment Law and Money Management, and is a frequent guest on business television channels such as CNBC Europe and Bloomberg Television.


  1. FONCHAM Ezekiel F,

    I am still fascinated with the RKC masters programs and more delighted with the zeal and effort that is made to keep prospective candidates like me informed as well as encouraged,
    I trust that my lot will fall in some time when am sure of my finances to engage a program and get through with it,

  2. Marcia

    Hi Professor Costa,

    Indeed I am keen to be on this programme as it offers the opportunity for me to comfortably stay home and get on with my masters. However, the planning of this will require a good chunk of money and time of which time is no problem but the money to invest is far too much for one payment.
    I believe the payments, if stretched out across the reading for this course, would be much more affordable and if viewed in the light of full time student rather than working adults, would be even more beneficial and attractive to the masses and the likes of me.
    I am indeed grateful but the fees are very daunting and require long term planning. I will continue to try my luck at enrolling with the hope that a reasonable offer can be made to me or a greater degree of autonomy is given to people like me.

    I am currently studying MBA Leadership and Sustainability at the RKC/University of Cumbria. Doing it online, I have the opportunity of working full time and studying and also applying the knowledge at the same time. I love the case studies and working on real projects instead of old fashioned classroom exams. I recommend RKC to anyone especially those that need to combine work with studies.

    I have read all the responses and comments from prospective students but like real life situation its different stroke for different folks. My main worry as at now is to be able to predict the right time because of various schedule that can surface without without prior clue and also to be able meet the financial commitment as and at when due to avoid unnecessary pressure.
    As soon as these issue are taken care of the time of commencent will be communicated.

    I would like to pursue a Masters degree in Medical Law. I cant seem to get any help/response to my query

    • admin

      We do not offer any Masters in Medical Law. If you are interested in an LL.M we have the LL.M International Business or maybe an MBA in International Healtcare Management would also be interesting to you. You can see a list of all programmes here: https://rkc.swiss/programmes

  27. Abdullah

    Hi Professor Cost,
    Thanks for the wonderful program. May I know if your institution offers a specific healthcare program class namely International Health Systems?

  28. Sulafah j

    This for sure looks interesting, i wonder how many hours a day from your experience does it need to study daily for this program, and as I understand the degree of master we receive at the end will not be called (online master) we would be certified exactly like if we studied with physical presence right? Also in regards to the thesis is their a thesis at the end or is the master accomplished only by finishing the courses as i hope🤞🏻,,and finally if we needed to receive our certificate without having to attend the ceremony for any reason is that possible,, many thank .

    • Hello Sulafah, Thank you for your interest in our Online programme. Regarding the no. of hours required to study is subjective and dependent on the student’s ability. Yes, you receive the same degree certificate as a full-time student from the University of Cumbria. A dissertation has to be submitted at the end of the programme. Yes, if you wish not to attend the graduation ceremony, the degree certificate will be mailed to you. Hope this helps!
      Stay safe and healthy.

  29. Guillaume Neze Boneza

    Bonjour cher vos enseignements se font seulement en anglais ou vous avez un autre programme français ? Et il faudra payer combien pour toute l’année académique pour le Master en économie industrielle par exemple

    • Hello Guillaume,

      Thank you for your interest.

      Please ask your question in English, as I do not know French. Please note, all our programmes are conducted only in English, and good knowledge of English is mandatory to apply for our programmes.
